Harness racing horses are of two distinct varieties, differentiated by their gait: the pacing horse, or pacer, which moves both legs on one side of its body at the same time; and the trotting horse, or trotter, strides with its left front and right rear leg moving forward simultaneously, then right front and left rear together. Both types usually pull a two-wheeled cart called a sulky. Feeling the pounding of hooves and seeing the power of the equine athletes turns many first observers into lifelong fans. Check it out for yourself! Bleacher seating will be available for general admission and food and beverages will be available for purchase.
